Thousands of genuflections for the prolonged blog break. We have good excuses -- a holiday season that gets longer, more exhausting but richer every year, too many Christmas cookies to eat, a mini-vacation from the computer -- but there's nothing more boring about pontification about the lack of pontification.
We have much to report: A wunderbar trip to see my family in Connecticut; Hope's new found prowess as a xylophonist extraordinaire; secrets to surviving her second airplane ride (there aren't really any. She's a swell traveler); and Mo's uncanny knack for stuffing two downcast suitcases with the contents of the Smithsonian and still hitting 50 pounds on the nose every time.
We'll get to all that stuff soon. Promise.
But first, a film that likens Hope to Godzilla. We have priorities, after all. And I have too much time on my hands.
